Cool New iPhone & iPad Game ‘Little Bird’ Uses Apple’s Accelerometer & Gyro

Little Bird combines Apple’s accelerometer and gyroscope gaming technologies, exotic landscapes, objects and contraptions allowing you to interact with the game in ways that have never been seen before on an iPhone or iPad.

By tilting your device to the right or left, Little Bird uses the latest technology along with gravity and speed to build momentum so you can get through each of 20 one-of-a-kind levels.

Playing Little Bird is a fun, challenging and unique experience. Before long you’ll be rolling, jumping, bouncing, flying through the air, swinging in baskets, riding in carts and shooting out of cannons while avoiding obstacles, booby traps and enemies to help Little Bird collect coins along the path to safety.

Fredericktown, PA (October 6, 2012) — The medical doctor who created the fun loving “Whack-A-Kitty” video that went viral on YouTube when it was viewed by more than 5 million has created a new gaming app for iPhones and iPads that is sure to be a big hit.

Robert Belluso, DO, loves his medical practice but could not resist his creative longings and arcade gaming background and devoted his spare time to developing the Little Bird gaming app. (http://www.littlebirdgame.com)

Little Bird combines current technology, exotic landscapes, objects, and contraptions, allowing the player to interact in novel ways that have not been seen before in an iPhone game. Little Bird brings the simple idea of a real skill arcade game to the next level, offering a fun, challenging, and unique experience.

Unlike games that rely on tapping, sliding or swiping, Little Bird takes advantage of the latest iPhone technology. The user tilts the device to the right or left, using gravity and speed to build momentum to get through each level.

Before long the gamer is rolling, jumping, bouncing, flying through the air, swinging in baskets, riding in carts, and shooting out of cannons while avoiding obstacles, booby traps and enemies to help Little Bird collect coins along the path to safety.

“Little Bird brings the simple idea of a real skill arcade game, from which the concept was born, to the next level,” explains Dr. Belluso, “offering a fun, challenging and unique experience that will keep gamers coming back for more. Little Bird is a fun, gravity driven novel game played with challenging physics-based obstacle courses.”

He created Little Bird to replicate the skills of playing real arcade-style games as no tapping, sliding or swiping motions are used. Belluso graduated in 2002 from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and currently practices family medicine in Fredericktown, PA.
